Greenyard To Re-Open Hungarian Plant After Listeria Cause Found
Belgian frozen foods producer Greenyard said on Thursday it would re-open its Hungarian plant after identifying the cause of an outbreak of the food-borne disease listeria, driving its shares 15% up.
Greenyard said it had found "persistent presence" of listeria monocytogenes bacteria in one of the freezing tunnels and would therefore close down this tunnel.
